Cheshire Pioneer

Connecting Care in Cheshire was selected in November 2013 as one of 14 Integrated Care and Support Pioneer sites. Connecting Care in Cheshire covers the geographic area of Cheshire, as covered by the Cheshire East and Cheshire West Health and Wellbeing Boards.

The Programme is fully supported by the two Local Authorities of Cheshire West and Chester Council and Cheshire East Council, along with the four Clinical Commissioning Groups working in the borough:

These areas are covered by our hospitals – Countess of Chester NHS Foundation Trust, East Cheshire NHS Trust, Mid Cheshire NHS Foundation Trust, and Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. With an estimated combined health and social budget of £1.3 billion, there is a clear commitment from all partners, including providers and third sector agencies to work together in a joined up way.
